Access to an at least basic drinking water service is fundamental to living a healthy life with dignity.
This indicator links directly to SDG 1.4.1. The global Joint Monitoring Program (JMP) which measures our progress to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), measures two levels of access – to a basic service and to a safely managed service (see Indicator 5.2 below). Data on this may be able feed into national SDG reporting. The indicator also links to humanitarian minimum standards (Sphere) and is likely to be a WASH cluster / sector indicator.
